Gather is a Devonian fine dining experience. Our larder is the shoreline, fields, hedgerows and produce of artisan farmers & growers of the region. We live the Gather name. From here, on Fore Street in Totnes, we create dishes that are contemporary and modern but with roots firmly in the classic gastronomic tradition.
With a focus on more interesting and unusual local meats and game, forgotten fruits & vegetables forraged from the hedgerows and fish and seafood from the shorelines and rivers of Devon. We believe in a regional style of cooking on a par with any of the finest French, Spanish and Italian giants.
With the bounty around us Devon can sit proudly alongside any of these. The land and the sea inspires us. It was on a walk over Dartmoor that Gather took its first breath.
Gather is a team. Gather is a larder. Gather is an experience.
